    The engineering team is continuing to work on adding support for multiple accounts on desktop clients. We will first launch support for 1 work/school account and 1 personal account so users can enjoy Teams for work and personal side-by-side. Windows and MacOS. Support for multiple work accounts is still being worked on and will come at a later date.

    You can track status via the roadmap here: https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?searchterms=68845.

    Thanks!

    Tenant switching has put a major roadblock in the way of Teams adoption for my organisation. As soon as we try to sell Teams to a new group of potential users, they say "can I use this to collaborate with my (clients|suppliers|colleagues)" so we demonstrate guest access with the tenant-switching behaviour ... and we never hear from them again

    I've said this before and I'll say it again: Tenant switching is absolutely abominable and practically a show-stopper for adoption of guest access. It's confusing and irritating at the best of times, and then fails to work half the time, requiring multiple retries.

    thank you!  ·  Warren responded

    Thanks for the feedback.

    We are considering a number of ways to better integrate experiences across Teams, Outlook, and other apps. However, we don’t have any specifics to share on this request.

    I see I've duplicated this idea with one I posted a little while back - https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/31532350-surface-groups-email-conversations-as-teams-cha

    @suphatra.... can these two ideas be merged?

    At present, it's entirely feasible for people to be conducting email-based conversations in the Group's mailbox (visible in Outlook or the "Groups" interface) and other people to be conducting chat-based conversations in the Teams interface - all completely invisible to each other. This is a particular problem for us at the moment as we try to wrestle our users out of an email-based mindset and open them up to chat-based collaboration: some members are slower to adapt so continue to follow familiar patterns by emailing the Group, while others jump into Teams and do everything via chat. Unsurprisingly, it's already caused noticeable communications breakdowns.

    In a perfect world all Conversations - no matter where they started (email or chat or, for that matter, Yammer) would be peers and capable of being conducted seamlessly, regardless of interface.

    However I concede that might not be even conceptually sound, and sounds like a massive amount of work, so I'll settle for these minor matters:
    - Give Team owner the option to surface the underlying Group's email conversations list (the Group inbox) in a channel of the Team
    - we can already send email to a Teams channel to start a conversation topic, but that's a one-way thing at present. Two nice enhancements:
    -- Teams chat replies to topics that started as email can be requested to be transmitted by email.
    -- If replies come in to the channel that are replies to an existing thread, then link them as chat replies (other UserVoice posts have asked for this already)

    This is HUGE for us. It's a massive gap at the moment.

    Adding email as a left tab panel remains under review. We are working on adding several Teams and email integrations:

    - Share to Teams: Share a copy of an email and any attachments into a chat or channel directly from Outlook

    - Share to Outlook: Share a copy of a channel or chat conversation via email directly from Teams

    - Actionable Teams Activity Emails: Teams missed activity emails display the latest replies and allow you to reply directly from Outlook

    See this post for more information:

    Thanks!

    I'm still interested and I get requests from my users for this, or something like it, on a daily basis. I am often asked "why do I have to jump around from Teams to Outlook to keep track of conversations". IMHO it's a huge gap that 'chat-oriented' conversations (currently surfaced only in Teams) are not integrated with "email-oriented" conversations (currently surfaced only in Outlook). It leaves open a major possibility of a topic of conversation having traffic in two different places without the threads ever being visible to the participants.

    (And that's before we even consider Yammer conversations)

    I would love to see the Teams client grow into a one-stop shop for everything - basically become "the Office 365 client" where you can access all the tools you work with. At present the client does a decent job of pulling together your chats -
    realtime (from SFB) or persistent (from Teams); documents from your O365 Groups; your calendar. But I think it might be interesting and productive for it to surface all of your "conversations" in one place:

    - email from your own mailbox
    - email from your Groups
    - Yammer discussions
    - IM chats from SFB
    - Persistent IM chats from Teams

    Yes, a challenge for UI/UX design - but if done right it could really pull things together

    if you have an existing post that you want to show in a different channel, you can edit the message and cross-post. This will add the top-level post to the different channel, but will not include the full set of replies. We will keep this request in mind as we evolve the cross-posting feature in the future and update if the status changes.

    Details on cross posting can be found here: https://support.office.com/article/cross-post-a-channel-conversation-in-teams-9c1252a3-67ef-498e-a7c1-dd7147b3d295.

    As Johan Bennink already said - this capability exists already via the Incoming Webhook connector
